Cold Weather Emergency Incident Rehab - PrePlanning and Incident Action Planning for EIR

This is final segment of our four part series on the topic of Cold Weather Emergency Incident Rehabilitation (EIR). In this segment we'll discuss the importance of planning and pre planning for EIR. We also discuss the role of the incident safety officer and Incident Action Planning that includes EIR. Joining me for this series is Dr. Jeremy Cushman, Medical Director for Monroe County, NY.

In this series we've reviewed the need for rehab, special logistical considerations in cold weather EIR operations, and the importance of "pre-habilitation" and remaining fit for activity during cold weather.  Changing weather conditions and the use of Incident Action Planning in relation to rehabilitation operations are covered in this final segment. 

Cold Weather Emergency Incident Rehabilitation was produced for emergency responders off all disciplines. Health care professionals who may treat responders in the hospital environment  will also benefit from this background information. For more on cold weather emergencies, click here.
